Microsoft wins injunction in Germany against Motorola Mobility

Microsoft has won a significant patent case in Germany against Google-owned Motorola Mobility.

Judge Dr Peter Guntz said Google’s Android operating system infringes Microsoft’s patent, which refers to a ‘soft input panel system and method’. The patent covers the ability for applications to receive an input from different sources.

Google is expected to appeal against the ruling. If it loses the appeal it will need to modify the Android operating system, license the patent from Microsoft or remove its Motorola products from the market in Germany.
